With all the holiday stuff going on, I was not able to finish the recap of my husbands birthday. I have already talked about the suprise party, but not the rest of the weekend. Well, thanks to a good friend I was able to rent a hotel room for the entire weekend for a great rate. It was nice to have a little get-a-way.
While we were on our get-a-way, I had a few activities planned. On Saturday, we had a couple massage done a local spa. It was nice that we were in the same room, it made it more relaxing. He had a couple of other services done such as a manicure and pedicure. I treated myself as well and got a pedicure. I think that he was nervous at first about the manicure and pedicure since he had never had a professional do it before, but he really liked the end result. I think that some of the nervousness went away once he realized I was going to be in the room. After the massage we went back to the hotel, had dinner and just relaxed.
My husband loves jazz, so on Sunday I took him to a local restaurant called the Polaris Grill, that has a great buffet brunch and has a live jazz band playing during it. Between the food, the music and the ambiance it was a wonderful morning. He became a little concerned once he saw the bill, but I told him not to worry about. Thanks to another friend who got me a great deal on gift certificates for our meal. I knew that my husband enjoyed himself, because he agreed to go to the mall by the restaurant with me. Just walking around the mall, was very pleasant we window shopped, picked up some little items and just talked. By the end of the day, we did not want to come home.
He said that he really appreciated what I did for his birthday and the best thing about (besides the watch that I gave him as his gift) was spending time with me. I must agree that was the best part for me too. I do not know what I am going to do for his birthday next year since I did all of this for this birthday. I have 11 months to think about it. Well, he has 3 months to think of what he is going to do for my birthday...let's see if he can keep up (just kidding).
